37 Days to Zen – 4 Days Left

Four days to go, or should I say four years to go... It will be like a walk up the side of a mountain in Nepal, barefoot, in the snow, with no Sherpa...carrying enough food to feed the rest of the monastery. And pulling a dead horse. But it will be worth it. Food intake … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – 4 Days Left

37 Days to Zen -Day 22 Change Day 15 Days to Go

I don't think I am much closer to Zen than I was 22 days ago. Maybe my expectations were a bit high. Maybe Zen isn't meant for everyone on the Planet. Maybe Zen means different things to different people. I watch videos of Monks regularly, and they seem as content as a human could be. … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen -Day 22 Change Day 15 Days to Go

37 Days to Zen – Day 21 Change Day 14 is Half of 30 Right?

I know the title says 14 is half of 30, but I might can prove it with Common Core Math. I am 14 days in with 16 to go to reach ultimate Zen, or the plain of enlightenment, where I will most likely get steamrolled by Chris Farley coming in hot. I felt a bit … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – Day 21 Change Day 14 is Half of 30 Right?

37 Days to Zen – Day 20 Change Day Lucky 13

If 13 is an unlucky number, I must be one lucky guy... 13 days in and I have been dead to the world for the past three. I can't seem to shake this feeling, and I am certain by now it's not sickness. Well, it could be mental sickness, but that's for another series...now back … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – Day 20 Change Day Lucky 13

37 Days to Zen – Day 19 Change Day 12 Might Kill Me

I am now 12 days into my 30 day run to Zen, and the past two days have been horrible. I feel like someone took the life out of me. I have a massive headache, and that normally wouldn't be an issue except for the fact I have only had a few headaches in my … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – Day 19 Change Day 12 Might Kill Me

37 Days to Zen – Day 18 Rough Day 11

There are some days I am not worth shooting, and since I am writing this at night, I can go ahead and tell you that today was one of those days. I felt like crap since waking up. I didn't want to get out of bed; I didn't want to get in the shower, I … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – Day 18 Rough Day 11

37 Days to Zen – Day 17 Change Day 10

I crave some stuff. Full flavored Coca-Cola, especially from McDonald's. Pizza, especially from Papa Johns. I also know the cravings will get much worse before they get better if they ever do. I remember wanting Taco Bell mild sauce while I was in Iraq. I craved it. These cravings are much like those were more … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – Day 17 Change Day 10

37 Days to Zen – Day 16, Change Day 9 -Lonely Tacos

Taco Bell sales have plummeted over this past week, driving stock prices through the floor. I feel better, so Taco Bell should continue to see dips in customers for the foreseeable future. I will miss some of the cashiers. One at Wendy's knows my name better than most of my friends. Okay, I don't have … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – Day 16, Change Day 9 -Lonely Tacos

37 Days to Zen – Day 15 Change Day 8 Hungry Nights

I used to eat heavy late at night. I say used to like it was years ago when in reality it was days and weeks ago. I wouldn't have trouble laying down because I just devoured two bowls of spaghetti and three garlic bread slices. I hurt from consuming three or four times what I … Continue reading 37 Days to Zen – Day 15 Change Day 8 Hungry Nights
